THE OPPOSITION

Mark Warburton was announced as the new Manager of QPR in May, taking over from caretaker boss John Eustace. Warburton had previously managed Nottingham Forest, Rangers and Brentford.

Last season, The R’s finished 19th in the Sky Bet Championship on 51 points. Steve McClaren started the 2018/19 season in charge of the West London side, before departing in April, with Eustace taking temporary charge for the remainder of the season.

There’s been a summer of change at QPR after top scorers Luke Freeman and Tomer Hemed departed. Freeman joined Sheffield United, whilst Hemed returned to Brighton & HA. Nahki Wells also returned to Burnley.

New boss Mark Warburton has looked to address this by signing striker Jordan Hugill from West Ham. Hugill will be assisted by the likes of Eberechi Eze, Ilias Chair and Josh Scowen. The R’s have also added Marc Pugh and Geoff Cameron to bolster the Club’s midfield.

Warburton has also looked to strengthen the team at the back by signing six new players in defensive positions including Yoann Barbet from Brentford and Lee Wallace from Rangers. Only relegated Rotherham United, Bolton Wanderers and Ipswich Town conceded more goals than The R’s in the 2018-19 Sky Bet Championship campaign.

ONES TO WATCH

Jordan Hugill

Hugill signed for QPR at the end of July 2019 on loan from West Ham United. He made an immediate impression for his new side, netting the opening goal in QPR’s opening day win over Stoke City. Hugill has previous experience of playing in the Sky Bet Championship having moved to parent club West Ham from Preston North End. He has also played in the second-tier for Middlesbrough.

Geoff Cameron

Cameron also joined Mark Warburton’s side in the summer after signing on a free transfer from Stoke City. The 34-year-old can strengthen the R’s all over the pitch. He assisted Eberechi Eze for his goal against Cameron’s former side last time out. Cameron has 55 caps for the United States National Team.

Yoann Barbet

Another of Mark Warburton’s new recruits comes in the form of French defender Yoann Barbet. The Frenchman had spent the last four seasons at Brentford before making the relatively short trip across west London to W12. The 26-year-old, who can play at both centre-back and left-back, has one cap for France’s Under-18s.
